A Pinch Of This
What are the measurements they used in the old days. On the Beverly Hillbellies Granny was measuring by Pinchs, Bits, Tads, etc. and they tried to figure out the equivalents.
I have figured that a pinch is what you can hold between 2 fingers and 2 pinchs is 1/4 teaspoon, and a tad is what fills up the hollow between the creases formed in your palm when you bring your fingers together which is about 1/4 teaspoon.
How accurate am I and what are the old measurements in Teaspoons, Tablespoons and Cups?
